The ActiveGrid Application Builder represents all data sources as XML Web Services, while still using native connectivity to access the data sources. From a developer's perspective, the metadata for all of the data sources is the XML Schema standard. Methods and services invoked for the data sources appear to the developer to be Web Services, even if they are actually databases or legacy systems. Unifying all data sources into a standard development methodology increases developer productivity and simplifies integration tasks.

How original. ActiveGrid - unified XML interface to enterprise information. Now where did I put those slides from '99 back at DataChannel? Well, maybe somebody will make it work this time...
